Personal:

I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

no run Fri/Sat- a little under the weather. Played frisbee today. Very windy. 13 people, other team had sub. The wind made every throw and catch an adventure. For the game to 5, my team started with the wind at our back. We scored first, then scored into the wind. Then the other team scored into the wind, then with the wind. We traded points the rest of the way, always favoring the team with the wind... which means my team scored last, 5-4. Tom had the most amazing catch of my bad throw. Fun day. We hadn't played 9 points in a while. It took a while for all the points due to the wind.

Lunch run on a sunny, 40 deg day. Felt very slow and tired. My left neck has a very stiff, painful muscle so can't turn it much. It's been a few days now so I'm hoping it starts improving. Didn't move as slow as I felt. 21 turkey (or so- couldn't count exactly as they were in a big pack) and 1 deer. No people on the trail, even at lunch. Surprising, disappointing.

Cool, nice day for frisbee. 11 people so my team had the sub, unfortunately (I prefer to have no sub. It was especially bad today because I was the fastest on my team, so when I subbed out, my team couldn't match up with the other team). I was throwing very well today, plus had some fun long catches early on. For the game to 5, I was almost able to intercept the first point but Haley somehow caught it just as I got there (I wasn't covering her). Then we traded points all the way till the other team won 5-4. When it was 4-4, Tom had a nice run and I was throwing it long to him for the win, but Kevin blocked my throw. I hope it bruised his hand :) Fun day.

AM- it was 28 deg. I didn't wear my pants and only had 1 long sleeve layer on top. I should have had more. You're dressed properly when you are a bit cold the first 10 minutes but then warm up after that. I never warmed up. Cold, not enough clothes. Slow. 8 miles in just under 70 min. 7 deer, no turkeys or people.

16 people for frisbee. Cool, a little breezy, overcast and wet grass from morning rain. I generally played well. We traded points till 3-3, then my team scored 2 straight for the win. 10 people stuck around for another game, which my team won 3-0.
